The Northern Saskatchewan Administration District (NSAD) is defined in the province's Northern Municipalities Act, 2010. This area's creation dates back to The Northern Administration Act, 1948, which provided for the administration and development of the northern part of Saskatchewan.
The NSAD covers approximately half of Saskatchewan's land area. However, it accounts for only three per cent (35,986) of the province's total population. There are over 70 communities located across the north and according to the 2021 Census; 51 per cent of the NSAD population lives on-reserve and 69 per cent are Registered or Treaty Indian.
